I use it with about 200 machines, with different servers (different 
Samba and Active Directory).

Occasionally, I get emails from users who use it for much more machines; 
I think the biggest one was about 10000 workstations.
I'm not familiar with the setup, I just know the guys wrote some backend 
for themselves, which they never shared...

As I understand, you want to install WPKG (using MSI installer) silently?

Could you paste the whole command line/parameters you're using?
